I can hardly wait to see either! Caroline looks so regal in these pics. A real princess.

I like how Stephanie looks there. Smiling and happy.

Stephanie is really beautiful and has a sweet smile, but she has aged a lot.

Both Princesses are beautiful and both is obvious that they are doing nothing against ageing, it is their choice and is absolutely respectable.

Nevertheless, being both in the same lever of "lack" of any surgery and other artifices, Stephanie looks much older that Caroline, despite that she is 8 years younger.
And please don't start reacting, this is not devaluating Stephanie at all, she is a wonderful person, full of quality and beauty. For me is just a pitty that life has marked her so much! Appearing exactly her age, and not so older, that she looks now would not cancel all her other qualities.

I can't understand the fuss about women ageing. No one seems to worry about men ageing.

Stephanie has a "lived-in face" - she has had a very varied, exciting and sometimes painful life, and it seems to me that she does not have many regrets - rather like the singer Edith Piaf ("Je ne regrette RIEN" - I regret nothing).

I wish you were right, maybe you are. Stéphanie is a very tender person, wonderful mother, life has not always been tender with her, and this is shown to her face. Neither for Caroline, but Caroline seems to be stronger.

In any case, both are wonderful.

Fireworks must be a really awesome show at night. But it's a nice picture this one. :flowers:

iceflower 11-17-2009 11:24 AM

Thanks alot for the first wonderful pics of the Red Cross
event today, Radker18 and giov! Seems to have been
a relaxed event with lots of fun as well, that is very nice
to see and once more great for the elderly people!


Please let us not discuss any age topics again, that's the
way life goes and we should concentrate on the great
events themselves!
